Mama Gunda is mean, controlling, deceitful, stubborn, violent, short-tempered, grumpy, controlling, and vengeful. She hates it when Uto and Kago fight and scolds them while pulling them down by their bottom lips.
Later, she becomes loving when she reforms, then she fell in love with Zugor after he accidentally told her she has beautiful eyes (most likely having never been complimented before).
Mama Gunda is the third villain in Tarzan who reformed.
Not much is known about Mama Gunda's past, but she revealed that she and her sons were constantly kicked out of various gorilla tribes and were forced to live in a valley. This is the reason for their villainous natures.
